I want to remove all 4 pots from one of my guitars and replace with 3 way switches
a les paul style
no volume control
but each pickup will have 2 tone switches
a treble cut-neutral-treble boost
a bass cut-neutral-bass boost
would/could I do this JUST with capacitors or do I need some sort of...
basically a metal plate, all 4 pots mount to, shaped like the control cavity
this eliminates grounding wire on pots
bridge ground, switch and jack grounds all solder to this plate
I see em on youtube all the time but cant seem to find a source
guitar-pedalboard-classic 30 = volume goes down and up significantly
guitar-classic 30 = volume stays the same...no loss
guitar-pedal board-fender HRD no loss of volume
guitar-fender hrdx = no loss of vome
same for drri and roland blues cube...no volume loss with or without pedalboard
Prewired pickguard or source everything individually...I can turn bolts and solder...just want to go with whats cheapest
I want good pickups and electronics at affordable price
Ive seen pre wired from $25 to $400 lol...
I want to remove all the guts from my ever troublesome peavey classic 30 chassis
(I have 30 watt combo)
I want to put together a point to point 2 channel marshall like chassis
doesn't need tremolo or even reverb...much like a peavey classic 30 but with a turret board and good quality...
Is It worth it?
Once you get the winder and any other necessary equipment together (what else besides a winder)
all you need to buy are the bobbins, pole pieces, wire etc
is it less expensive to wind your own, and is the final product worth it...rather than, say, spending $150+ on a Seymour...
When I click it down, neck pup
when I click it up, bridge pup
I would have to spin the switch 180 degrees (wrapping wires around it) to fix
or...just unsolder the hots and solder them to the opposite lug (which is what I'm gonna do)
I think this happened because I wired it with a les paul...
asking for a friend
he has a friedman head with adjustable ohms
he has 2 8-ohm speakers...wired jack to speaker to speaker to amp (in series??)
what ohm should he run the amp...my guess is 4
if in parallel it would be 8ohm setting
I have already put a schaller roller bridge on the guitar
will be adding a graphite nut
will also be adding a string butler (would have anyways even with no bigsby) as I have a couple les paul type guitars with these and they improve tuning on d g strings
will also add locking tuners...
ways off, as I want to do a couple kits first, and build up my tool collection
But for my first build from scratch
les paul style (24 3/4 scale) semi-hollowbody
flat top no arch
f hole on bass side, control cavity on the treble side...access panel on back for pots and switch...
I will hollow...
my concern is portable over stationary
a portable hand planer (powered)
portable belt sander (bench sanders aren't too bad price wise)
Ive seen many use portable router so no too worried
I will probably get a stationary band saw...as these are affordable
any real downsides to the...
will it work
recently added uncovered humbuckies to an epi dot
want to add covers
I plan on putting tape over the lugs and adding wax RIGHT before I put cover on, clamp it, and solder it
my wife is burning candles all day...so there is always a big jar candle with a ton of melted wax in...
I took my 8 yr old peavey crappy 30 to a licensed service center
$50 deposit to look at it
this thing has always eaten tubes...sometimes theyd red plate...others just die quickly
then I had a "tech" look at it...for $200 he basically let it sit for a month and dusted it off...wtf
he works out...
Just put some SD 59's in my epiphone dot
they are uncovered
I don't like the look...want to add covers
I don't necessarily HAVE to match the gold plated bridge and tuners...they are tarnished as heck anyways...just think chrome or nickel would look silly
so any opinions on what might look...
The bridge and the neck both sit at a significant angle
If I set the string height to Gibson spec at pole pieces, than when last fret it fretted the string hits the other edge of the pup
how do you get these to sit flat in the pickup ring??
If I just puch on it...
I bought two of these for my next rewire on a semi-hollow
the magnet is too big to fit through the 3/8 pot hole, but fits fine in the f hole
it telescopes long enough to easily reach the jack
it also flexes/bends...and has a light
3bls holding so it wont drop the heaviest of pots...
I learn EVERYTHING the hard way
current chisel tip wont take solder...have sanded it and got it to work...sanded again...
ordered new ones and waiting...realized I am not tinning and keeping the tip tinned correctly...
like first time wrapping it in solder then plugging in...
instead of damp...
Want to use solid strand tinned copper...one long piece to ground 4 pots...(needs to fit in terminal lug hole as well)
I want it to be sturdy, add rigidity to the pots...but still fit through the lugs
so what guage....22 works for sure as the wire I usually use is .22
.20 would be sturdier, but...
Took it to a licensed repair shop
looking to finally getting this thing fixed...been to a couple "techs" that I wouldn't refer satan too...
red plating tubes
sound cutting out
looking at probably new filter caps and tube sockets...wont know till they get back with me
once it works well I'm...
When I was a young 20 something I went back and forth with my youngest uncle and aunt (in their late 30's) taking turns making tapes for each other...
my aunt asked me to make them something they probably never heard before...this was 1994
I owned the entire studio collection of siouxsie...
Question is in the title
I'm looking at small combos...orange and/or marshall
want to be able to play clean with dirt pedals AND use a dirty channel on the amp
so a master volume foot-switchable with effects loop option would be my idea of perfect
Is there a designated doubler pedal??
Just to make it sound like you have 2 guitars playing same thing
or is there a way to set a delay to get this...maybe a slapback very very close to original signal...one repeat??
what do you do??
Ive tried this with chorus but it always sounds like chorus LOL
